The Amazing Thing
What's in the box? A strange and weird thing? Something terrible, or a thing of beauty? Storyteller Peter Grimm opens the box to find the 'Thing' that takes him on an unusual journey that weaves it's way through a medley of well known Brother's Grimm tales, to finally unlock his imagination and free his stories. A truly original story told with puppets, acting and live music. Fun, inspiration and delight for all the family.
Peter Grimm is a descendent of the famous Brothers Grimm. He has inherited the tradition of his ancestors and tells the their stories as they were written down 200 years ago.
But, with his inheritance also comes a ghost. The brothers locked something away in a box when they wrote down and fixed the stories. They threw the box into the sea, and now that something, that rogue and wild element of story, has returned with the tide. Peter opens the box and sets free the "amazing thing" to add it's influence in the sea of stories.
